Random thoughts and postings…

The weather has been horrible for my vegetables this year. There are 7 very small tomatoes on a plant called Fourth of July which claims to be the earliest variety to ripen and you’ll have ripe tomatoes on Independence Day. This was this morning. July 1st. You be the judge.

It would take too long to list everything that is not producing anything but bugs so far so I will show you something that is very exciting! I have never tried growing this before and bought the plant with no pre-planning when I was at Lowe’s looking for something else and it has had flowers for a few weeks now and then this morning the first fruit (or vegetable) of the plant had appeared! I can tell you that what has me excited is the purple thing. Can you guess what it is?  Or aspires to be?

While you try to figure it out, perhaps someone can explain to me why no one inside the walls of Alexandria thought to go scavenge a Home Depot or something and grab the supplies to build a greenhouse so they could grow things year round when not fighting off zombies? Some 2x4s and some plastic tarps. Or grab a book from a library that tells you how to look for food in the woods since Daryl apparently didn’t know how. If Carole could make cookies with beets, she could have figured out how to make soups from tree bark. Had they shown some smarts the show wouldn’t have taken such an idiotic turn there at the halfway point of season 6.

I am hoping to add more old Spacey items to the site this next week. I haven’t had the time but with the weather turning hot and humid (when it’s not raining!) I’m inside more now.
